False Start #12

An underdog only knows successes as something singular, abnormal, but incredibly sweet – an oasis in the desert, the sudden respite of a long journey. Unlike the champion, they can never know the spoils of success or consistent victory – the verdant valleys, settlement and prosperity. The underdog will envy the champion for the continuity of his excellence, seeming effortlessness in the face of adversity; the champion will envy the underdog for that sweetness of victory after a great struggle no-one, not even they themselves thought they could win.
